    With the text tool, create a new text layer “test”.

    Add this expression to the Source Text property:

    style.font

    You can also use the expression language menu (right next to the pickwhip, where you can find all the methods and properties) and via Text > Font… you’ll get a popup to select any font you have installed on your system complete with previews (very much like the character panel), and after selecting, the correct String with the system-name will be inserted into your expression.
